Since I’m leaving work for good, I’ve decided to dress more corporate in my last few remaining days. I’ll be going on a two-month break afterwards so I’m pretty positive I’ll miss wearing blazers and trousers until I accept my next job offer (hopefully, still in corporate, but who knows?). Besides, it’s been feeling a lot like summer lately so you can count on me wearing flesh-baring pieces, no holds barred in the next few weeks post-resignation!
For now though, I’m maximizing my office’s -2 degrees Celsius environment (it’s seriously super cold in our office). It’s the only place where I can wear wool, knits, and booties without being teased for dressing like I’m in a state experiencing a polar vortex. Sometimes, when I look at my nails, it’s turning purple because of the frigid temperature (then again, I am often wearing something sheer and thin to work).
I still can’t level with the idea of me leaving… it’s such a foreign concept. I was never the type to “quit”, not because I’m not a quitter but just mostly because I like the idea of security and comfort. But I’m 25 and I can’t always rely on security for the sake of. Like I said, it’s both a sad and happy thing. The feeling of nostalgia always hits me when the topic gets brought up. I even get separation anxiety and I haven’t even left yet! I guess the feeling is similar to leaving college, trotting off to the next chapter of your life and leaving the very place where you’ve grown a lot as a person.
I like working, I like the idea of having a career and working for my own keep. It makes me feel independent and reliable; it makes me feel worthy and mature. I don’t think I’ll ever stop working or doing anything, I mean, as tempting as it is having nothing to do and nothing to worry about, it’s just not me. I want to be challenged, I want to hone my skills, and I want to grow a a person. Some people will never get that and some will be content with not working and not having a career–to each her own but for me, having a career assures me that I’m amounting to something. You can call it a personal gauge.
And I will continue to work. In another company, for myself, for my future… just in a different place.
Wherever that is, I’m ready (decisions, decisions, decisions).
Again, you’ve reached the end of my blog post where I’ll be making a few announcements. As you all know, my announcements are hardly ever boring as I usually use this space to present contests, prizes, exciting events, and very, very important information (like product reviews and such).
Let’s start with the one that’s happening tomorrow…
I hope to see all fierce fashionistas tomorrow! I can’t wait to handpick 20!
Last call for entries is tomorrow 12 midnight. I will be announcing the 3 winners in the next blog post! And finally…
